LET EVERY ONE CALLED AFTER THE NAME OF CHRIST DEPART FROM INIQUITY

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 23, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – DEPART FROM INIQUITY

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Beloved,  you must determinedly pursue something.  You must not give  yourself   rest  until it is attained.  You must have a likeness  after God your  loving Father.  He is sinless and does not tolerate sin from men or angels. When angels of high rank like  lucifer  sinned,  He drove him out of heaven.

Isa 14:12Isa 14:15  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

When  Adam  made after the likeness of God sinned, He drove him out of paradise of Eden.

Gen 3:23Gen 3:24 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Beloved,  remember this sin , inward  or outward,  great or inconsequential,  shall separate  a man  from God’s  presence on earth and at heaven .

Isa 59:1Isa 59:2  Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

This is because God can not behold  sin   from anyone.  Even when our Lord Jesus Christ was carrying our sins.  Even though  He  Himself was sinless.  He was separated from God  momentarily.

Mark 15:34  And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

See,  God can not behold sin or tolerate iit from anyone and that includes you. Don’t ever ever forget.

Hab 1:13  Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,and canst not look on iniquity:wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously,and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?

The reason for this is very simple.  Two can not walk together without  agreement.

Hosea 3:3  And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.

To help Abraham to walk with God,  he must be perfect.  Because you must walk with God,  it is  compulsory  not optional.  You must be perfect and sinless

Genesis 17:1  And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

See consequences  of sin here and hereafter.
1. Life threatening sickness  

Psa 107:17Psa 107:18  Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

2. Physical and eternal  death 

Ezk 18:4  Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

3. Ruined life here and hereafter. 

Ezekiel 18:30  Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

4. Withdrawal of good things from God  

Jeremiah 5:25  Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

I am persuaded  you are sinless.  But just in case you are not.  See what you must do immediately.

Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

This becomes mandatory and  expedient because this very evening,  might be too late to do so. 

Isa 55:6Isa 55:7 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

See God’s unchanging  commandment for you and me.  Receive  grace to do so  in Jesus name

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Dearly beloved, no doubt Jesus our Lord either during His earthly  ministry  or now in His eternal majesty,  remains very loving but detest sin with utmost intolerance   This was because during His earthly ministry,  He lived exemplary lifestyle  of sinlessness,  that could not be faulted by human or spirit  beings.  See it yourself.

John 8:46  Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

Jn 14:30  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

During this time,  He pardoned  sin with agape love but commanded thereafter,  to all His hearers and followers,  to abstain  from sin in it’s  entirety.  You are  excluded in this  commandments.  See them.

Jn 8:10Jn 8:11  When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

John 5:14  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

The blessed Holy  Spirit  who Himself is the spirit of holiness firmly established  this compulsory sinless lifestyle  demanded from heavenly  minded believers through apostle
Paul. See it.

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

This becomes  absolutely necessary because of the eternal end of sinners inside or outside the church.  See them.

1Co 6:91Co 6:10  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Gal 5:19Gal 5:21  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

See sinless lifestyle is feasible.

1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

Please learn from this  husband  and wife ,  who both died inside the church for lying   Be determined to live a sinless lifestyle,  if eternity with God is very important to you.  May the good  Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

Act 5:1Act 5:10   But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whilst it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.

Friend, it is no secret rapture is dawning.  Only graceful believers free from inward and outward sin’s shall be part of it. You shall be part in  Jesus name.  See it

Rom 6:1Rom 6:4  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Friend,  grace makes you to reckon yourself dead to sin and alive  to God in righteousness.  

Rom 6:11Rom 6:18  Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Friend,  grace empowers you and I am referring to you in particular.  That grace,  God’s grace will enables you to depart from iniquity.

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

This is because anyone  and everyone  committing sin is of the devil.  Don’t ever ever forget  this

1Jo 3:81Jo 3:10  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Sinners shall not have access to  heaven nor be part of the  imminent  rapture.  You shall be  part in Jesus name.

Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Receive grace to be sinless,  until you meet Jesus in the sir in Jesus bane

Tit 2:11Tit 2:14  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
